I’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately, which unfortunately means that I can’t fill my grocery cart with stacks of 85 cent Lean Cuisines anymore. Instead it’s organic meat, fresh veggies and lots of expensive natural items. Just yesterday I cringed while grabbing a $1.34 packet of soy yogurt off the shelf (but it’s so good), and who would have thought something called “nutritional yeast” could be so pricey? The point is, eating well isn’t usually cheap. But for the Canadian province of Nunavut, even eating poorly will break the bank. Check out some of their astronomical food prices here!
Naturally, the locals in Nunavut are more than displeased with their grocery bills, and there have been protests. But it’s incredibly expensive to transport food that far north, so it’s doubtful that prices will decline any time soon. Check out even more high numbers at the source! [via Buzzfeed]
What do you think of these prices? Which is the most shocking?
